Thracian helmet made after a piece found in Pompeï, with a gryphon head on the crest. The eye protection tells us it's a piece from the beginning of the first century A.D. Made in brass.
This is one of the most famous gladiatorial helmets. The holes for the eyes had developed in a big grill that opens a bigger field of view to the fighter. The protective collar holds strongly the helmet to the head. This helmet is dated from the second half of the first century A.D. Made in brass.
